MSC Cruises and Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri signed today the final contracts for the construction of four luxury cruise ships.
The contracts have a total value exceeding EUR 2 billion (USD 2.2 billion).
All four vessels will have gross tonnage of approximately 64,000 tons and will feature the latest maritime and environmental technologies available.
Under the agreement, the first of the four ships will be delivered by spring 2023.
The remaining three will come into service one per year over the following three years through 2026.
‘With this now firm order, MSC is entering a new segment that bears significant potential globally,” Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman of MSC’s Cruises Division, said.
